Upcycled Crafts: Finger Puppets
Hello everyone and Happy Friday! For today’s craft I decided to pull out a craft I did for storytime once – a felt bird finger puppet. As felt is not upcycled, I made it a challenge to put an upcycled spin on this finger puppet and used cardboard from a cereal box. Feel free to experiment with what you have around the house or at work and see what you can upcycle!
Take the cardboard and begin by sketching out a shape of what you want your puppet to be. Cut it out and trace a duplicate shape for the back side of the puppet. Cut second shape out.
Take your needle and thread and loosely sew together. If you sew it too tight, you can’t get your finger in there! After sewing, bind off with a knot and decorate as you wish. Enjoy!
Here’s a photo of the final upcycled product alongside my original felt finger puppet.
